Hampshire Pop Up Studios is a new and regular event featuring the work of talented artists and makers from across Hampshire and the surrounding counties. It came about through the desire to create a good quality Art & Craft Fair that showcases a high standard of workmanship and is affordable and accessible.
Our ambition is for members of the public to be able to meet, chat and buy quality Art and Crafts directly from the makers – thus building a close link between the maker and the buyer and therefore helping build the makers reputation and their brand.
We particularly want to support new, emerging or less well established makers; those that create as part of a portfolio career, those who do it part time and even those who make as a hobby but want to take it further.
The final “must” for us is that the work exhibited at Hampshire Pop Up Studios must be of a high standard and the maker must produce the main part of the product themselves.
We want visitors and exhibitors alike to really enjoy our events. With that in mind we aim to create a special atmosphere. A lovely space that feels good to be in – relaxing, aesthetically pleasing but most of all, friendly!
Hampshire Pop Up Studio’s blog runs in conjunction with our events to further showcase the work of our talented exhibitors – past, present and future. Not only this but we aim to inform about whats going on in our wider community – shows, exhibitions, events and news.
